while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure this reservoir of inexpensive gas does not undercut the addition of renewables to our energy portfolio. solar, wind, geothermal. dership on these technologies for a balanced energy portfolio and ultimately to reduce our carbon footprint. at each step, we should be looking to enhance energy conservat
not realize this huge trade deficit we have. half of it historical has been energy products, mostly oil. if you get to the point where you are a self-sufficient producer -- i am glad you said north american energy independent. i always disliked the idea of this national energy independence. if you become energy self- sufficient, you eliminate half the trade deficit. this really changes the balance of payments and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all ar
by the party opposite that energy companies will have to put people on the lowest tariffs. that is a record we can be proud of. >> steve basic. >> mr. speaker -- [inaudible] my constituency is enb during a hideous regulatory fast thanks to the health and safety executive and the european union. the british economy is very reliant on smallnd medium businesses far less able to cope with bad regulation particularly when it's badly administer inside the u.k. >> my honorable friend is absolutely right. businesses large andsml are complaining about the burden of regulation. not just the burden of regular ration from europe -- regulation from europe, but more generally. and that ishy we should be fighting in europe for a more flexible europe and a europe where we see regulations come off. but the view of the party opposite is sit back, do nothing and never listen to the british >> you have been watching prime minister's questions from the british house of commons. watch any time at c-span.org, where you can find video asked by ministers questions and other are just public affairs programs. >> this ev
, money, energy, and one of the things that made this campaign unique was the degree of investment and ownership people had in this common object of hours. you understood this was not just about the candidate. not just about joe biden or barack obama. this was about us. who we are as a nation. what values we cherish. how hard we are willing to fight to make sure those values live, not just for today, but for future generations. all of you here understood and were committed to the basic notion that, when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history, it moves. it moves forward. that is part of what we celebrate when we come together for inauguration. yesterday americans in all 50 states took part in a national day of service. tomorrow, hundreds of thousands will join us in the national mall. what the inauguration reminds us of is the role we have as fellow citizens. the sense that there is something larger than ourselves. that gives shape and meaning to our lives. the theme of this years inauguration is our people and our future. throughout my career, that has always given me energy
with the energy -- and help something like 80,000 houses a year, this new plan could help up to 230 thousand houses. that is what we are doing. it is a record we should be proud of. >> 90 mr. speaker. and prime minister should know that the os of recently released figures, 24,000 cold- weather deaths, the majority of those who perished were over the age of 75. does he think his government should do more to help the elderly and vulnerable and less to help millionaires with tax cut question mark >> we are doing more to help the elderly. a record increase in the basic state pension. bigger than what the party opposite would have done with their roles. keeping the cold weather payments at the higher level. the last rt only introduced before the election. keeping our promise. taking all of those steps and making sure that energy companies will have to put people on the lowest. that is a record we should be proud of. >> my constituency is enduring something hideous. thanks to the european union. with my right honorable friend remind us that the british economy -- businesses far less able to cope w
and more powerful storms. the path toward sustainable energy sources will belong and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must leave it. we cannot cede this, must climates prague -- its promise. that is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national parks, forests, waterways, snowcapped peaks. that is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care. that is what will lend meaning to the creek our fathers once declared. >> there was a lot of time spent on climate change. was that a surprise? guest: i think people expected climate change to get a shout out along with immigration, gun control the environment of trinity was really been very surprised challenge mentioning god. it got a huge and a huge chunk of time, almost more than any other policy issues. that was a real surprise. host: it was an issue we did not hear a lot about on the campaign .rail paria guest: that was by design. his advisers have made it clear that they did not see that as winning -- as a winning campaign issue. although it is something the president did care about, it
for america, we have passed good energy legislation, good budgeting legislation. we set priorities for the nation, but yet they failed to go anywhere in the senate. and with that, i yield to mr. huelskamp. >> thank you, congressman duncan. i agree with all your comments and we might come to a little different vote tomorrow on where we head and then frankly, we have to have a budget. but raising the debt ceiling for a budget to be named later is to me something i won't be able to vote for, but we are trying to understand that we have a sequester. but the resequencing issue is interesting and only in washington could that be a word, where we are trying to resequence what is going on here. one thing i remain concerned about, after two years up here, washington is broke and dysfunctional. it is dysfunctional when the president is going to be late in his budget. $50 billion in spending. most of which won't be spent until 2015 and i'll just say when i visit with constituents at home, this is the worst they have come to expect from washington, when the dust settles at the end of the day,
credits because the most important thing is to make sure people are getting a good deal in terms of energy prices. that is why we're going to be legislating to make companies put people on the lowest available tariffs. that is something that undecided of the house we're doing whch will help all families. >> as a diabetic can i welcome the fact that last year the prime minister lit up number 10 for the first time on world diabetes day? one-third of all the prime minister leaders have got either, are either obese or their overweight. yet they consume cans of coke and pepsi that contain up to eight teaspoons of sugar. what steps is the prime minister imposing to take to engage manufaurers in the war against sugar? if we don't act now, the next generation will be ovehelmed by diabetes epidemic. >> i think the right honorable friend is absolutely right to rae this issue. it is one of the biggest health challenges that we face in our country, a public health challenge that we face. he's right to highlight the problem of excessive eating of sugar. that is why we challenge business to a responsibi
obama is making a moral case on the issue of climate. do you see energy issues, climate issues, being tackled in this next congress? a realistic goal? guest: energy policy broadly absolutely has to be part of the discussion. climate change -- after the severe storms with sandy recently and other harbour tragedies, i think the science is definitely confirming the fact that climate change exists and that we have to do things more responsible about it. my focus is on renewable energy. we don't have oil companies in nevada, but what we do have is an abundance of wind, solar, and geothermal. and i believe that those are alternatives that should be part of our overall energy mix to make us less reliance on fossil fuels and more energy independent in the long term. host: philadelphia, pennsylvania. our next caller is richard, independent line. caller: how are you doing? how are you doing, congressman? the question -- a couple of thoughts. i am interested in what puc is the area that productivity will occur. as far as when you talk about job creation and you coming from nevada, looking at the
. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult, but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and industry. we must claim its promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national presence of forests and waterways, snow-capped peaks, crop lands. and how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared. host: the wall street journal on climate change has this. in flushing, new york, an independent. how are you? caller: good morning. i liked his speech, because it was different from the last one, because it concentrated on how to make america a better country rather than being the military police for the world. he was tempted to talk about north africa and al qaeda and all these things, but he wants to make america stronger. cost is too much. america is not respected, even spending all this money. how to make america big and strong, how to teach our kids, how to respect peop
at limited resources. climate change is a big issue you have been concerned on. the global energy needs are going to increase about 50%, that emissions are going to go up significantly primarily because of china and india and we could do significant harm to the u.s. economy i think by putting additional rules and regulations with very little impact on the global climate. in this tight budget environment with so many competing american priorities, i would ask you to give considerable thought into limiting significantly resources that would not help us as an economy, not help us as a country and not help us globally in perhaps the efforts you might be pursuing. i don't know if you have specific thoughts. >> i do. i have a lot of specific thoughts on it more than we have time now. and i'm not going to abuse that privilege. but i will say this to you, the solution to climate change is energy policy. and the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the downsides that you are expressing concern about, and i will spend a lot of time trying to persuade you and other colleagues of this.
sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot seed to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industry, we must climbs it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forrest in water ways, our crop land and snow cappedpeeks. that is how we will preserve our planet, command it to our god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed of fathers once declired. >> a lot of time spent on the issue of climate change in that speesh. was it a surprise to folks in the environmental community? >> i think they expected a shout out or mention along with immigration, gun control and tax issues. the environmental community was surprised as to how much mention it got. climate change got a huge chunk of time, almost more than any other policy issue and that was a real surprise to a lot of people. >> and an issue we didn't hear a lot about on the campaign trail, correct? >> that was definitely by design. over the last year the president's advisors have been
: the drought situation, its impact on food prices and energy prices. our two guests will be here and our phone lines are divided regionally. let's go back to some of the numbers. production decreases and apples, asparagus, coffee, increases in peanuts, dry beans, barley, oats, wheat, and potatoes. guest: when you look at the crops that had significant decreases first, we had a mild winter, a late freeze behind that. that hurts the past zero crop, and asparagus, we have seen a continual decline in acreage. 9.7% decrease is acreage-base. poor pollination in washington state. grapefruit production is down 7.4%. we had high dropout rate-- high drought rates in florida. " weather affected strawberry production, primarily in california. host: chuck abbott, how does this compare to previous years? guest: on the major field crops, there was a major impact. wheat farmers were lucky in that their major variety is winter wheat. they were able to harvest the crop before the drought hit. because they were encouraged to grow more wheat, they escaped the brunt of the drought. corn production was down signifi
as conservatives must dedicate our energies to growing the economy to showing younger generations on winning the future. we need to grow the middle class. that doesn't line government. if more government were the answer to our problems, our economy would be booming right now. that's been tried. you can't hire enough government workers or give enough taxpayer money to your friends who own green energy companies to create prosperity. the facts are in. that path is a disaster. balancing our books is not what matters most. government is not the end all and be all. the health of america is not about america at all. balancing the backs is a nice goal but that's not the primary objective. we need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i'm going to talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else from what i say we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth which we know that government is out of control and the public knows that too and we just lost an election. we ca
-policy is defined by food security, energy security, he monetary assistance, the fight against disease and the push for development. as much as it is by any single counterterrorism initiative. new mexico must be. it is defined by leadership -- and it must be. it is defined by leadership. speaking out for the prisoners in north korea or millions of refugees in displaced persons or victims of human trafficking. it is defined by keeping faith with all of our troops who sacrificed to secure afghanistan. america lives up to her values when we give voice to the voiceless. i share with the president the conviction that it is equally imperative that we assert a new role in the world of increasing failed and failing states. burgeoning populations of young people hungry for jobs, opportunity, individual rights, and freedom are rebelling against years of disenfranchisement and humiliation. a fruit vendor in tunisia who ignited the arab awakening want to dignity and respect. he wanted to sell his fruit without corruption and abuse. that is what led him to itself in the late. the youth of tehrir square represen
that with the consent of the senate, i will do everything in my power, summon all my energy and focus to build on her record and on the president's vision. senator mccain, as he mentioned, is a longtime friend. we met here in the senate coming from very different political positions and perspectives, but, you know, we found common ground. i will never forget standing with him in hanoai, in the cell which he spent many years of his life listening to him talk about that experience. i will always be grateful for his partnership in helping to make real peace with vietnam by establishing the most significant process in the history of our country or in any country, for the accounting of missing and dead in any war. and then for working to lift the embargo and ultimately normalize relations with an old enemy. john had every reason to hate, but he didn't and instead we were able to help heal deep wounds and end the war that had divided too many people for much too long. as we talk about war and peace and foreign policy, i want all of us to keep in our minds, as i think we do, the extraordinary men and women
silicon energy in marysville are leading the world with some of the most durable solar cells ever built. janicki industries in sedro- wooley is driving innovation in aerospace. valve, a software company in bellevue has grown into a worldwide leader in interactive entertainment. and in grays harbor an across- the-board effort led to the re- opening of the paper mill last year, putting 175 people back to work making 100% recycled paper. i had this to say about washington. innovation is in our genes. [applause] we create. we invent. we build. so now we must go forward, with both high ambition and a recognition that the power of innovation will fuel the next wave of job growth in washington. make no mistake, our top priority today, tomorrow, and every day for the next four years, is jobs. we must build a working washington, capable of sustained economic leadership in a rapidly changing world. my plan focuses on job growth in seven industry clusters. aerospace, life sciences, military, agriculture, information technology, clean energy technology and the drivers of economic growth and job cre
long-term economic vitality by ensuring we make investments in new energy technology and that we develop new storms of energy as well as -- forms of energy as well as traditional forms of energy here at home so we are less dependent on foreign imports of energy. that's a strategy that enhances our national security, improves the environment, addresses climate change and the very important -- and very importantly helps our economy by allowing industries to develop here in the united states, that this if they don't develop here will develop elsewhere. industries that provide good jobs and will be very sustainable in the future. >> those who look at this issue say dealing with existing power plants would be the best way, most effective way to reduce carbon emissions and advance what the president said in the inaugural. does he agree with that? >> i'm not going to talk about -- >> philosophically. >> philosophically is aned a verb that is somewhat synonymous with speck latively and i will, you know, not speculate on future -- >> [inaudible] inaugural address and those who look at thi
becoming the bankrupting of our federal government. we, as conservatives, must dedicate our energies endeavors to growing america, to growing the american economy, to showing the younger generation how america can win the future. our task is not to grow government but to grow the middle class. if more government or the answer to our problems, our economy would be booming right now. you cannot hire enough government workers were given of taxpayer money to your taxes to allow green energy company to great prosperity. that path is a disaster. balancing the government books is not what matters most. government is not the and all and be all. the health of america is not about government at all. balancing the books as a nice goal but that is not our primary objective. our objective is to grow the private sector. need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i will talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else away from what i say, understand this -- we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of aust
that is creative and thinking. it is creative to look to programs like modular housing, energy efficiency, procurement initiatives, etc. it certainly will not avoid this kind of disasters, but improved response and mitigate their effect in the future. >> for me the most frustrating thing has been a lack of transparency. especially when it comes to businesses. we have found a message that has been put out there at this local events and the media is just disconnected from reality. that is incredibly frustrating for us as we try to fit into this ecosystem. we're not trying to duplicate something that does not exist. for the business owner, they might only try one avenue and they give up. this said, the heck with us. they're not going to do what they said there are going to do. why should i was my time with us? there was an article in bloomberg business week in december that i was interviewed for a when they were talking about, why are more businesses not taking disaster loans? at the time it was written, they had made a grand total of 70 loans to businesses in new jersey. we had a 23. they h

[applause]we must build a working washington capable of sustained economic leadership in a rapidly changing world. during the campaign, i put out a campaign to put washington back to work. over 100 points of action. focuses on job growth in several clusters, aerospace, life sciences, military, agriculture, information technology, clean energy technology and the maritime trade. these clusters represent both the present and the future drivers of economic dr
will do it in health care, education and energy. think about that. health care is one sixth of the economy. energy, you control the production and the pricing and control everything from he tried to with capt. trade and he tried. education is the future. you control those three elements and you have what lenin would call the commanding height of a post industrial society. that is what he said he wanted to do. in fact, you don't remember this because, unlike me, you have real lives for it you don't have to watch everything the man says. i do for my sins and they clearly are mending. [laughter] but he sprinkled that speech and the subsequent speeches until the georgetown speech with a phrase -- the new foundation, which was never picked up on and never remembered. but it was in there. in fact, the name of the speech was called "the new foundation." he already saw himself one month into the presidency as a successor to the new deal and the new frontier. he wanted this appellation, the new foundation, to be what obama is and would be. so it shows you how ideologically ambitious he was from day
to committing all of my energies to working with the other commissioners and extremely talented and dedicated men and women of the staff of the sec, to fulfill the agencies mission to protect investors and ensure the strength, efficiency, and transparency of our capital markets. the sec, long a vital and positive force for our markets, has a lot of hard and important work ahead of it. i would welcome the opportunity to lead those efforts and build on the work of chairman mary schapiro and chairman elisse walter, who i am very honored is present today. finally and most importantly, i want to thank my husband, who is here today on what is our 43rd wedding anniversary -- >> today? >> today -- for his strong support of me in seeking to engage this public service. thank you very much. >> thank you. richard. >> thank you, mr. president, for the confidence you have placed in me and the team at the consumer financial protection bureau. we understand that our mission is to stand on the side of consumers -- our mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters -- and see that they are treat

(applause) our brave men and women in uniform, tempered by the flames of battle, are unmatched in skill and courage. (applause) our citizens, seared by the memory of those we have lost, know too well the price that is paid for liberty. the knowledge of their sacrifice will keep us forever vigilant against those who would do us harm. but we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war; who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends -- and we must carry those
to the country, here is our plan for the country, for the budget, for healthcare, for energy, defense. when we do that, we put our plans out against the president 's results, i think we will compare quite favorably. we will win back the trust of the american people and put our plan into action. that is what you do in moments like this. pick yourself up, dust yourself off, fight for what you believe in, and get back to work. the challenge is continued to mount. it is easy to get discouraged by it all. the election lost. the difficulties of the changes are coming. but it is a mortal sin to despair. i'm not ready to give up. i know you're not either. you would not be here if you wear. that is why i'm asking you for your help. every conservative needs to be involved. after the election, i needed to take a little bit of time. i needed to get into the woods. that is where i read charge. i took my daughter with me. she got her first ddeeer. [applause] that is what we do where we come from. i know other people cannot relate to that. but i realized sitting next to her, talking to her in the woods and how
looks at corrections costs. helping america become more energy dependent. and paying for transportation structure, roads, bridges, things like that. also, educating the workforce. let us take a listen to one of the governor's and what he had the say during this state of the state address. this is the governor of new york talking about new york state. >> yes it is hard to reform education. i know the politics of it. i know the problems. i know the issues. but, can you imagining how smart the state would be when we actually educate all of our children to the best of their god-given potential? when every black child and every white child and every orphan child and every other child is educated to their full potential? i know helping the state economy is hard. i know it has been decades of decline. but can you imagine how successful our economy is going to be when that upstate economic engine is running at full speed , and buffalo, and syracuse, and albany. i know women have been treated unfairly for a long time. i know it is cultural. i know it is historical. i know it is difficult. if it
-funded energy efficiency scheme following the closure of -- last week? >> the eco-scheme which is many times the size of the warm front scheme him a warm front helped 80,000 pounds a year, eco-could help up to 230,000 families a year. so it's a bigger potential at a better scheme. >> what assessment has the prime minister made of unemployment in my constituency? in particular what assessment has he made having more women in work ever before? >> the point the honorable gentleman makes is absolutely right. there are now more people employed in the private sector than ever before and are also more women employed in our country than ever before. when you look at the unemployment figures that have come out today, what is remarkable is that employment is up in almost every region and unemployment is down in almost every region. there's a huge amount more to do but clearly over 500,000 new jobs in the private sector last year, the fastest job creation rate since 1989, this i think shows we are on the right track. >> mark intricate. >> mr. speaker, does the prime minister believed that the council,
government are the first for 30 years not to offer hardpressed consumers a government funded energy efficiency scheme, following the closure of warm front last week? >> note. the ego-scheme which is many times the size of the warm front scheme, it has helped 80,000 families a year, but ego could help out of 230,000 families a year, so it is bigger and potentially better. >> what assessment has the prime minister made of unemployment in my constituency, particularly the fact that more women are in more than ever before? >> the point he makes is absolutely right. there are more people employed in the private sector than ever before. there are also more women employed in our country than ever before. and we look at the unemployment figures that came out today, but we see that what is remarkable is that employment is up in almost every region and unemployment is down and almost every region. there is a huge amount more to do. clearly over 500,000 jobs created in the private sector last year, the fastest job creation since 1989. we are on the right track. >> does the prime minister belie
, the gentleman given one minute. mr. poe: mr. speaker, there is good news about energy. we have untapped natural resources here at home. in the united states we have natural gas that can be turned into liquefies natural gas. other nations don't have this. we have so much natural gas that we can export it by selling it as l.n.g. not only will it bring money and energy back home, it will create jobs. this means jobs and capital for americans and american companies. even the department of energy says that expanded export of l.n.g. will benefit the united states' economy. in 2010, the oil and natural gas industry added $476 billion to our economy. to top it off, the oil and natural gas industry employs 9.2 million people in america. we are missing out on this opportunity by not exporting l.n.g. we have ignored this opportunity far too long. let's stop relying on middle eastern nations and use more natural gas and export it as l.n.g. that's just the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from indiana seek recognition? >> to add
democrats will go along. the epa and some other regulations are pretty hostile to small business, the energy production. and other are democrats or not really on board. alternative energy agenda that the obama administration is pursuing as well. and on health care, there are particular parts of obamacare that congress may be able to slow down or stop. the piece is mostly a report on what the administration is doing, but it gives guidance to congress. one thing republicans in congress needs to think about is what they can accomplish in by sized chunks. there will not change health care in a conservative direction in the next four years or reform entitlements. can they accomplished a few good things that also point the way towards bigger things later? i thing maybe they can. host: our guest is bill kristol. our next call is from frederick, maryland, peter is on the republican line. thanks for waiting. caller: how are things? host: fine. sounds like you're listening to us on c-span radio. caller: yes, sir. but itod to listen to, plays havoc on my blood pressure. republicans have been losing for
. drilling on federal lands, etc., etc. very pro-traditional energy sources. in his inaugural he said, it is all about green energy. we will see more attempts to impose that agenda. when he attempts his next phase of liberal implementation, what people begin to feel the effects of obamacare, rising prices for healthcare, rising prices for insurance, people losing their coverage, which they are in droves now. companies putting people on part-time work so they do not have to provide them with insurance. all kinds of effects are happening. all those realities accumulate, and as obama pushes the envelope beyond where the american people are comfortable , we could actually have the fulfillment of him going too far and then getting lost opportunities. >> you are nodding. do you think it went too far? >> overreached -- bill clinton in 1994. republicans thought that in 2000 x where the new governor of indiana said, hey, republicans are going to act like democrats with all that spending and government expansion, they will just hire the professionals. and they did. then you saw in 2010, dialing
remarkable. you did great things -- your 1/3 renewable energy mandate -- the reform of workers compensation -- the reorganization of state government -- protecting our forests and strengthening our timber industry -- reforming our welfare system -- and launching the nation's first high speed rail system. but, of course, governing never ends. we have promises to keep. and the most important is the one we made to the voters if proposition 30 passed -- that we would guard jealously the money temporarily made available. this means living within our means and not spending what we do not have. fiscal discipline is not the enemy of our good intentions but the basis for realizing them. it is cruel to lead people on by expanding good programs, only to cut them back when the funding disappears. that is not progress -- it is not even progressive. it is illusion. that stop and go, boom and bust, serves no one. we are not going back there. the budget is balanced but great risks and uncertainties lie ahead. the federal government, the courts or changes in the economy all could cost us billions and drive

[applause] originally from ohio, speaker boehner serves now as the leader of the united states house of representatives. elected to represent the eighth congressional district of ohio, for a 12 term in november 2012, the speaker is a national leader in the drive for a smaller, less astley and more accountable federal government. as importantly, he is an ardent row lifer. -- pro-lifer. x hello everyone. thank you for being here in our nation's capital on the 40th anniversary of roe versus wade. cannot think about a march for life without nellie gray. she was the leading voice. for those who did not have one. now, it is up to us to be her voice. to commit ourselves to do all we can to protect the same to the of life -- sanct
meeting our renewable energy goals -- more than 20% renewable energy this year. by 2020, we will get at least a third of our electricity from the sun and the wind and other renewable sources -- and probably more. transportation and high speed rail in the years following world war ii, california embarked on a vast program to build highway, bridges and roads. today, california's highways are asked to accommodate more vehicle traffic than any other state in the nation. most were constructed before we knew about climate change and the lethal effects of dirty air. we now expect more. i have directed our transportation agency to review thoroughly our current priorities and explore long- term funding options. last year, you authorized another big project -- high speed rail. yes, it is bold but so is everything else about california. electrified trains are part of the future. china already has 5000 miles of high speed rail and intends to double that. spain has 1600 miles and is building more. more than a dozen other countries have their own successful high speed rail systems. even morocco is
the special with the word in green energy. it seems obama was able to escape where carter did not get reelected. what gives you hope was essentially carter lost. >> his policy does not work. he is doubling down on them. there is a reason most presidents have a very challenging second term. they tended to overreach. president obama is giving every indication he will push for a radical and liberal agenda. it is that going to work or will it backfire? i believe the results of this election will further the process of new leaders stepping forward. we will do a better job making the argument. one of the ones you have is fox news, msnbc, cnn. we're living in parallel universes. do you watch fox is predominantly? [applause] you thought romney was going to win with 70%. if you watch msnbc, god help you. [laughter] a consequence of that, we did not do a good job communicating to those who were not already in the choir. let's take young people. young people voted overwhelmingly for barack obama. we did not carry the message. if you are a young person coming out of school, why would you be votin
said, i'm going to do it in health care, education and energy. now think about that, health care is one-sixth, and then you control the production and the price and you control everything and he tried to with cap and trade but failed. and education is the future. you control the three elements there and you've goten what lennon would call the commanding heights of a post industrial society. that's what he said he wanted to do. but you don't remember this because unlike me, you have real lives, you don't have to watch everything the man says, i do for my sins and they clearly are many, but he sprinkled that speech and the subsequent speeches until the georgetown speech with a phrase, the new foundation, which was never picked up on and never remembered, but it was in there. in fact, the name of the speech when they give out the printed version of it was called the new foundation. he already saw himself one month into the presidency as a successor to the new deal and the new frontier. he wanted this appalachian, the new foundation, to be what obama is and would be. so it shows you how ide
, and the youthfulness, and if anybody like the republican party were to abandon this issue, imagine losing the energy of the people gathered here today, how disappointed they would be. we need to be realistic about what this legislation can do. it was only, 2010," was loader - lower turnout, but there was a wave election where obamacare was the central theme, and it should still be because we have not seen it yet. we are just getting the foreshadowing before the big earthquake. that brought in conservative legislators, said to bt partiers interested in a new future for finance, but they also turned out to be social conservatives. you have 27 states, both houses controlled by the gop, a high water mark, and 27 republican governors, four of them women, and all very pro-life. to turn off the spigot from the issue makes very little sense. 138 ills were passed. they were not todd akin bills. that was never discussed. we will not go there again, but those bills were about sex selection abortion, pain in the unborn, the nerves of the child at 20 weeks -- all of that makes pain perception happened. states ar
long-term solutions. we need to stop playing games with the debt ceiling and spend our time in energy on job creation. i supported a clean debt limit bill, however, because in this version congressional pay has been tied directly to passing a budget, it is important to ensure that the budget that is passed is responsible and protects our most vulnerable citizens. my amendment would not kill the underlying legislation. it would merely add commonsense protections to the bill for members of our armed forces, our veterans, and our seniors from the budget cutting process. anyone who supports the underlying legislation has no reason to not also support this amendment. if adopted, the debt limit would still be raised to allow the government to pay its obligations through may 19, and members of congress would still have their pay withheld if they failed to agree to a budget resolution by april 15. the amendment simply clarifies that the budget resolution protects our troops, veterans, and seniors. i recently visited the west palm beach v.a. medical center. speaking with both veterans and staf
, historic and gave real energy to people who share this value system. so with that, mr. speaker, i have to curtail my hour and i'll yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. under the speaker's announced policy of january 3, 2013, the gentleman from new jersey, mr. smith, is recognized for 60 minutes as the designee of the majority leader. mr. smith: i thank the chair. mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the subject of my special order. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. smith: mr. speaker, 40 years ago today marks the u.s. supreme court's infamous reckless and inhumane abandonment of women and babies to abortionists. 40 years of victims, dead babies, wounded women, shattered families. 40 years of government sanctions, violence against women and children. since 1973 more than 55 million children have been killed by abortion, a staggering loss of children's precious lives, a death toll that equates to the entire population of e
